Japanese Human Tetris

Japanese have really weird but funny ideas regarding tv game shows. Here is one particular example. I got this vid from my teammate in Davao. This is from a Japanese game show called "Tunnels no Minasan no Okage Deshita". The contestants of the show are grouped into teams, usually the Blue and Red team.

The idea of the game is pretty simple: each contestant has to squeeze themselves through a pink foam wall, which sometimes have human-like shapes in it or any other various shapes. If they cannot find a way to fit through the wall as it lurches towards them, they are pushed into a pool of water. The team with the most contestants that can get through the wall is declared the winner. Here is part 1 of the first episode:
